Distress Ink Background Technique

Today we're bringing a very quick tip using our favorite inks. If you haven't heard of Distress Inks, let's take a moment to tell you, GET TO CREATIONS GALORE FAST. We'd love to tell you in debt why we love them and allow you time to browse all of our samples. For today, we'll tell you that they are vibrant, water based inks that blend, stamp, and color. 

Using a foam applicator tool, we added Candied Apple Distress Ink to a piece of white cardstock. We then laid a stencil over the piece and spritzed water. The ink reacts to water and will appear lighter in the areas spritzed. This creates a subtle but gorgeous design. 

We couldn't resist creating a Valentine's Day card with the background, adding a doily for a fun embellishment.
